I chose today to whine and complain-part of my New year resolution was no complaining, but I need to whine a little.
It's fricking cold today- It's 37 out now, but feels like 26. It was 72 here on Saturday. I can't get warm, two pair of socks, heat on, etc and I am still cold. My Raynaud's is annoying me today too. The extended forecast is goofy too-61 over the weekend and back down to 37 by next Wednesday. My joints are killing me from the weather fluctuations and I feel 100.
I can't eat curry-evidently, it tastes good, but is bad on my system. Stomach problems for two days straight and I have PMS on top of it. My allergies/sinus problems are all wonky from the damn weather.
I did get my AC Moore shopping down-couldn't find any yarn I really wanted, bought two skeins of Patons Merino for another hat pattern I bought off of eBay. Somehow spent over $60 on beads and a book "Crocheted Scarves". Yes, I could have found the patterns online, I am sure, but I needed some sort of instant gratification after driving there in the rain and finding nothing I wanted. They didn't carry the Clover felting things, which I really wanted. Then I wanted a thingy to make holes in fleece blanket edges to crochet into the holes-nothing. Then I decided, okay I want a set of those knitting looms, the ones that come three to a set (round ones) for three different sizes. Those looms were everywhere two months ago-nada for the set, each sold individually, but none in the adult hat size I needed were to be found. I did get a board type loom-just what I needed another hobby and toy. I also realized, once I got home, they overcharged me $5 on a sterling clasp I bought. The thing was marked $3.99, but it scanned at $8.99.
Mike is working from home tomorrow and I hoped to be able to go out to lunch with him, grown ups only, however, I am working at the school tomorrow. I have caller ID and it showed School Superintendent, which is what it shows when they call when your child is sick, etc. I hesitated about answering it, but the mom in me kicked in. As soon as I heard who it was, I wanted to toss the phone across the room and run out screaming. Anyway, I was going to say no, but when I heard which teacher it was, I figured she might have requested me, so I said yes. It's Special Ed again, different class, but some of the same kids as before. It's more trying then the regular classes, but I liked it and really liked the kids. Anyway, Friday-Friday is ME day-I swear.
Okay, with the school thing, I will get paid, silver lining there, although I would have preferred lunch with Mike.
With the yarn thing, couldn't find a silver lining, sorry, although I did get some pretty beads. Anyone know of an easy way to do edging on the fleece blankets?
Weather thing, no silver lining. Okay, it could be raining, but who cares, it's damn cold! I told Mike last night I wanted to move to where is was warmer year round-I think he thought I was kidding, but I wasn't.
Curry thing-stomach problems suck and I always have something. I know now not to eat curry. PMS-no silver lining there, sorry.
Okay, done the whine-fest and complaining. Back to my regular self. That felt good!
